Gal Gadot’s warn­ing for ‘misog­y­nist sex­ists’

Mid Day - - HITLIST -

WON­DER Woman star Gal Gadot has sent a tough mes­sage for misog­y­nist sex­ists around the world that their free run of pa­tri­archy is up.

In a pro­mo­tional in­ter­view for her up­com­ing film Jus­tice League, the 32-year-old ac­tor was asked by co-star Ezra Miller to de­liver a warn­ing to straight men in wake of the sex­ual abuse and ha­rass­ment scan­dals that have hit Hol­ly­wood like a ice­berg.

“I’m re­ally into the idea of the turn­ing of the tides. The last cou­ple of thou­sand years of hu­man his­tory have been male­dom­i­nated in a way that has not al­ways served us clearly, here we are on the brink of de­struc­tion. I won­der if you would say some­thing for me. Would you say, into the cam­era, ‘Hetero-pa­tri­archy, your wrath upon this world is over’? I want it so bad.” Ezra, 25, who plays The Flash in the film, asked.

Gadot, who was ini­tially con­fused by the word ‘hetero’, ad­dressed men of all sex­ual ori­en­ta­tions with the mes­sage, “I’m just go­ing to say, “Misog­y­nist sex­ists, your wrath upon this world is over.’”

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the ac­tor has re­fused to sign the much-awaited se­quel of Won­der Woman if Hol­ly­wood pro­ducer Brett Rat­ner, who as been ac­cused of sex­ual ha­rass­ment and ho­mo­pho­bia, re­mains at­tached with the movie.
